National Restaurant Association Statement on the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act
Washington, D.C. – National Restaurant Association Vice President of Public Policy and Legal Advocacy Shannon Meade today released the following statement on the introduction of the PRO Act of 2021:
“The PRO Act will make radical changes to settled workplace policies creating chaos for the restaurant industry while it struggles to survive. The proposed changes erase a century of bipartisan consensus and balance reached by courts, regulators and lawmakers, and creates an entirely new national model for the employer-employee workplace.
“If enacted, this bill will cripple restaurants, the overwhelming majority of which are small- and family-owned businesses operating on single digit margins—and what hurts these businesses hurts their employees and their communities.”
